In a 30-hour operation against outlaws in the kachcha areas, Ghotki and Kashmore police have killed 15 alleged hardened criminals and arrested three injured ones. Three of these suspects were wanted bandits, one of whom carried head money worth Rs1 million while the other two carried head money worth Rs 500, 000 each. The Ghotki and Kashmore police launched a joint operation following an alarming increase in crimes. Since most criminals live in the kachcha area, which falls on the border of both the districts, the police combined their forces. We should highlight such operations so that the police stay motivated. Thank you to all the brave policemen for getting rid of the criminals. KHURRAM SALEEM, April 12.
